Circle These Dates

  • 2/9 (vs. Delaware): The Mountaineers put on a strong first half in their season opener last year against the Blue Hens, highlighted by a six-goal run to lead by a goal at halftime. But Delaware managed to storm back for the four-goal win led by Will Hirschmann’s four goals and three assists.
  • 2/23 (at UMBC): UMBC was known for their defense despite very low-scoring on offense. The low-scoring aspect was there in their meeting a year ago, but the defense wasn’t. Mount crushed the Retrievers 16-7 thanks to five goals from Stephano Mastro and a seven-point performance from Brenden McCarthy.
  • 3/5 (at Richmond): The eventual SoCon champion Spiders came out hot early with a 6-1 lead in the first quarter. But the Mountaineers came back to tie the game at nine early in the fourth. Richmond did score four of the game’s final five goals en route to a three-goal win. Nick Capuana caused five turnovers for the Spiders.
  • 3/30 (vs. Sacred Heart): Chris DiPretoro was riding on a fantastic game, scoring his 7th goal to give the Mount a one-goal lead with 5:25 left in regulation. Dylan Furnback was also sensational in net with 19 saves when the game was over. But two goals from the Pioneers including Logan Liljeberg’s game-winner with 56 seconds left gave Sacred Heart a big win in terms of NEC play.
  • 4/20 (at Hobart): Mount St. Mary’s was up 9-4 at halftime against the Statesmen last year before Hobart mounted a second half comeback to tie the game at 11 in the fourth. But the Mountaineers went on a 4-0 run and almost lost the lead again, giving up three straight to the Statesmen. However, the Mount didn’t break and held on for the one-goal win.
